Toronto Eaton Centre Store Closing - 70% Off Lowest Ticketed Price
Selection was fair for Vans shoes ($79.99 > $23.70) and pretty good for "770" stretch chinos ($98 > $29.40) this morning. That's only 1/5th of the cost of a comparable Lululemon ABC pant. The selection for shirts was slim. The sale people said it was very busy on the weekend. 70% off the lowest ticketed prices at the Toronto Eaton Centre
My receipt did not say sales were final, but had the usual "30 days of original purchase."

J. Crew Closes More Canadian Stores
The future of US fashion brand J.Crew in Canada is in question after it recently closed its CF Chinook Centre store in Calgary recently. The brand has closed several Canadian locations over the past couple of years in Toronto (CF Fairview and CF Markville) and at West Edmonton Mall, and sources are saying more closures are to come.
The brand is struggling south of the border, though it’s seeing some attention with news reports of celebs such as Megan Markle wearing the brand. Nevertheless, J. Crew terminated its Canadian PR contract last year and other retailers are said to be eyeing its valuable real estate — if there’s one thing J. Crew did well, it picked great retail spaces in malls and on high streets. Rumours persist that Canada Goose is looking at J. Crew’s CF Toronto Eaton Centre location, for example.
J. Crew still operates a network of full-priced stores as well as outlets in Canada, at least for now.
